In France since the end of June 2012, a BET Break box is broadcast daily with The Heat and 106 & Park on MTV France.

In October 2015, BET France was announced for November 17, 2015. This information created a controversy due to the absence of black animators on a channel historically directed at black communities. [1]

The voice-over of the channel is China Moses.
